Did you know that up to 40% of food grown and imported into the U.S. is wasted, and about 40% of that waste is generated by consumer-facing businesses like grocers, restaurants, institutions, and food service providers? Solid Waste Management Districts across Southwest Ohio are working with businesses, institutions, and service providers to address wasted food.
At this virtual workshop, the Center for EcoTechnology will review the strategies and best practices for addressing wasted food. You will also participate in 2 breakout group sessions of your choosing, focusing on specific solutions across the EPA Food Recovery Hierarchy.
As a participant, you will leave with an understanding of the steps to establish programs, an awareness of key pitfalls and considerations for success, and a curated list of resources to help you on your journey.
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We hope you can join us!
You can find complete details in the event registration form. We will be sharing a final agenda and list of speakers with registered attendees prior to the event.
This workshop is in partnership with Hamilton, Warren, Montgomery, Adams-Clermont, and Butler County Solid Waste Management Districts, with support from EPA Region 5.
